Job description:

We are a family run small 12 bedroom hotel on the banks of Loch Lomond catering for its own residents plus our self-catering holiday guests, as well as the owners of boats berthed in our 130 berth marina facility and the owners of holiday homes on our 92 pitch holiday park. We also have a healthy passing trade from the busy A82 running past the hotel. We often cater for small functions (up to 35 persons), host live music and themed nights.

Our menu mainly features good home made food. We also run a specials menu offering around 2 to 3 starters, 2 to 3 mains and a couple of desserts – all depending on the time of year. It would be the responsibility of the Head Chef to create the specials menu, changing on either a weekly or fortnightly basis, again depending on the time of year. Fine dining we are not, but good, hearty grub crossing over into quality gastro pub style meals. We use as much fresh and local ingredients as possible.

We are a seasonal hotel, being much busier in the summer months than the dead of winter. We close the hotel during the week for the first 6/8 weeks immediately after New Year, This is when most of our staff take their annual leave, and when we normally conduct maintenance works on the hotel. Bank and national holidays are obviously busy times for us.

Location
We are on the northernmost shores of Loch Lomond, about an hours drive from Glasgow. We have both a train station and a bus stop connecting us to the rest of the world. Ardlui is a small hamlet - there is not much here apart from the hotel, marina & holiday park so it might not be for everyone. Although lively from Easter through to the end of October, it can get quiet during the off-season. Fantastic for people who love the great outdoors or water sports (we have our own on-site Wakeboarding School)

We require a chef to take control of all aspects of the hotel kitchen, including but not restricted to:
• Menu Planning
• Ordering
• Suppliers
• GP
• Service
• Stock control
• HACCP & Cook Safe Records
